Since B and I stayed up last night until after 2am working on a last minute kitchen face-lift project that we can almost wholly thank to an overly ambitious afternoon on 5hour energy...I am not in the frame of mind to put together a proper blogpost. However, I'm overdue, so I'm taking a cue from Lindsay over at a Design So Vast and completing a fun and different list that is probably meant to reveal something about my inner workings...we shall see.
Perennial to-do list – Never-ending laundry, never-ending emptying and reloading the dishwasher, constant wondering if the house will ever get a deep cleaning when the children are this young...or ever really, because I don't appear to be the 'deep cleaning' sort of gal.
Refrigerator Shelves – whole milk, soy milk, IC Light, leftover Earth Day 'dirt' pudding, hamburger meat for tomorrow's meal plan, a half-finished jar of spaghetti sauce, and thawed frozen blueberries.
Itinerary – Finish the variety of house projects we have going simultaneously - none of which are fully and totally complete, Plan the 5th annual Beer Olympics, make plans for our summer vacation to Florida with the Kochs.
Fantasy Itinerary - Cambodia, Ireland, Costa Rica (again), Japan, Thailand (again), Rio, Montana, South Africa, Greece, Turkey, Scotland...Actually - close your eyes and spin a globe. That's where.
Playlist - Country is what is most prevalent on our car radios, but when I'm making dinner I youtube videos to play and I've been youtubing these lately: You are my sunshine - Noah Guthrie, When I was your Man - Bruno Mars, Mama's Broken Heart - Miranda Lambert, Wagon Wheel - Darius Rucker, Shine - Florida Georgia Line, Ho Hey - The Lumineers, Home - Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, Stay - Rihanna.
Workout Plan - 10-minute trainer three days a week, trampoline football or 'ninjas' with Greyson daily.
iPhone - Instagram, Pinterest, Red Stamp, and Shutterfly.
Top 5 List – a hot drink in the morning, Brandon's kiss on my neck when he gets home, the way Grey has started scrunching up his nose when he asks a question, Gemma's full blown smile, our bed.
Bucket List – Write a book, start a non-profit, jump out of an airplane, and take our kids to Thailand.
Mind – The giant to do list, Greyson's volatile swings from violent energy to neediness for cuddling and attention, Gemma's defiance and strong will, wondering if I'll ever stop worrying about every aspect of our kids, my coworker who unexpectedly lost her husband yesterday, poems by Tyler Knott Gregson.
Blogroll - The Cunninghams in Bush Alaska, Short, Fat Dictator, Suburban Snapshots, My Restless Legs, Ramblings of the Ribble Family (and so many more!)
Walls of your Favorite Room in Your House – Three framed books open to some of my favorite quotes in them. (The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo, The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith). This print framed in thick frame, and a black & white photograph of a woman's hands making the shape of a heart on a park table that I bought off of the street near Lincoln Center when I lived in New York.
Liquor Shelf – American Honey, Bacardi White Rum, Gentleman's Jack, and Crown Royal Black.
Last Credit Card Statement - our (finally finished!) Family Yearbook for 2012 from Shutterfly, half the payment for my blog update design from Let Birds Fly (can't wait!), Disney Princess-inspired dresses for Gemmi from the Little Wellies shop.
Screensaver - no screensaver, just straight to energy-saving sleep mode.
TV Every Night - Usually a movie for the kids (recently its been Rio every.single.night), occasionally Duck Dynasty marathons, sports, or if I'm awake by myself - episodes of Dawson's Creek on Netflix (!) or Girls on HBO.
Play along! What's on your...
